is john boehner. he was last seen in washington when he was re-elected speaker of the house. there are reports he and the house gop are at an annual retreat in williamsburg, yet conservatives like hugh hewitt are calling him a milk carton republican because he's gone missing on several very important debates. do you know where he is? >> you know, i have not personally seen this man, john boehner, but i have heard of him. i know who he is vaguely. i think he's the guy that had the most miserable, unpleasant speakership in the history of the republic, and it was because he had these conservative freshmen who came in all excited to undo the government, and they didn't understand that as speaker his job is to not undo the government. so he's had this problem where he can't please conservatives like hugh hewitt because they want him to champion real conservative principles but he can't get re-elected in his district, and republicans can't win on a national level if they champion those same values. i think right now boehner has chosen to just go quiet and sort of back away from th
republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as he begins the second term. if you ask john boehner or mitch mcconnell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inaugur
consensus. republican house speaker john boehner told newly reelected president obama he wants to see obama succeed. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led -- not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead. not as a liberal or conservative, but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunctions and to the right thing together for our country. >> there you have house speaker john boehner. >> i appreciate the sentiment, but the words at the moment, we will see what kind of truth, what kind of authenticity there is behind those words when the president, now back in washington, sits down with republicans to deal with that word i hate, sequestration. when you start dealing with these cuts on the table -- with said many times, budgets are moral documents. when they get into the weeds about these numbers and about the priorities, we will see how strong sentiment comes through. >> my spontaneous response is i believe those words, and t
. but we know that john boehner often has had trouble with his various plans. plan b most notoriously, getting them approved, accepted and passed by his own house republicans. and cantore made a very declarative statement today. there already immediately were grumblings that some house republicans will go along with this i'm not sure that democrats will, too. it remains to be seen whether, indeed, john boehner and cantore can get passed what they want to do. then again this is just another three-month extension. now the good news for the vix watchers out there is that this puts it past, you know, the coming showdowns on sequestration involving the budget which will all kind of happen in march. so this is one cliff that may not happen as two other cliffs are under way. three months from now, depending what happens with those cliffs and what happens with the economy, the house republicans, the tea partiers and the let's blow it to hell members of the republican caucus may not want to go along with this for another extension. the president has clearly won, steered them down, as he said h

i'd get shot. bipartisan outreach will be so successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar v
of the house john boehner's office says committees of jurisdiction will review the president's proposal. speaker boehner also said if the senate passes a new gun corolla they will take a look at that, too. >> peter doocy in washington thank you so much. talk do you again real soon. >> to an extreme weather alert mother nature's wrath about to hit the south. >> after we find our affiliate reporter in winston salem, plows are preparing for the storm. good morning, nicole. >> good morning. in winston salem about the most action we are seeing is the rain. but crews are on stand by. this is the city yard where they keep all of their trucks and they are ready to run the roads and salt this morning. they were waiting to see what was going to happen. the ground is too wet and really our temperatures are pretty close to 2k50egs. it is way too warm for anything to sit. that will not be the case later on this after noovenlt between 4 and 6:00 we are expected to have our temperatures dip and 1 to 3 inches of snow are expected in this area. they are definitely getting ready. the home improvement sto
john boehner. it is boehner that can stop the president's agenda dead in its tracks. all of the president's priorities including gun control, combatting climate change, ultimately must go through a republican-controlled house that is led by boehner, to get anything passed. he must find a way to work with boehner, despite deep political differences on the very issues that the president wants to pursue. and it's not just the house. there are also pro-oil, pro-gun democrats who can stymy the president's agenda in the senate. that brings us to joe biden. you might consider him the president's ambassador to capitol hill. at the start of the second term, the president is counting more than ever on biden, who quite simply has better and deeper relationships with members of congress than the president himself. he's, frankly, more well liked on capital hill. >> obama! >> thank you so much. >> reporter: and most important it will for t for the president, the people who were there watching his speech. the people that helped him get elected president twice. those are the people that
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people
in the house. >> so why do this then? you know, you have john boehner speaker of the house saying it's the senate's job and joe scarborough talks about how the nra being on the fringe now and the republicans are up against it in terms of an identity in their party. is this sort of the president using leverage to make the republicans look bad or what's the motivation? >> no. i think you take the president at his word. it was his worse day in office. it was a gut wrenching moment for the entire country. he believes this is the time to push these additional gun measures. dmoes politics of this are tough. listen 30 years your don't touch gun control. that is sort of, a bedrock principle of politics among democrats and republicans. what he's trying to do is change 20 years of politics. it doesn't happen in two months. it might be the beginning of a debate that over time might change the trajectory of gun politics. doubtful. but a lot of conservative democrats in the last 20 years that weighed in on guns have paid a political consequence for that partly because of the nra and partly becaus
of the president of the united states. unfortunately, there's no one who will do that. not speaker john boehner, not mitch mcconnell, not everyone mitt romney who was the party for the presidency. >> now, jonathan, when you look at this, the birther movement hasn't gone anywhere. they're still going strong. there's been 100 court cases filed to prevent the inauguration ceremony monday siting obama's over-seas birth. and i wonder where that gop base got the idea from that the president wasn't born here. it certainly wasn't just don trump. look at this. >> no one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. they know that this is the place that we were born and raised. >> all i can tell you is ha the general consensus is that he has produced a birth certificate. the question is is it legitimate? >> this is the easiest problem to solve. all the president has to do is show it. >> so why is this important? because if you dehumanize the president, if you made him un-american, you've made him other, then you don't deal with him because he's not american, he's not really le jit. if you're constituents wit
completed an evaluation of that same keystone pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becoming an ideological touchstone in washington but it doesn't mean a whole lot. that oil will find its way to china, the united states, to europe, wherever it's needed whether the pipeline comes to the united states or it goes across canada and off the coast of vancouver british columbia. this dc fight has very little meaning in the larger picture. >> michael: but those dc fights change the way we talk about it. >> they do. >> michael: it will be the centerpiece for however long for a moment or months of conversatio
of sequencing, the critical question is the house, and john boehner twice in the last few weeks has had to bring a bill to the floor that a majority of house republicans oppose. that doesn't happen very often. likely on immigration, you can get 60 votes for comprehensive reform, probably puts bainer in t the same position. there are only so many times you can do that and remain speaker. the important sequencing has begun with the sandy and fiscal cliff votes. >> we'll stick with the metaphor. warming in cooperation or chilly confrontation? >> the incentives nationally for republicans are to do something about immigration. but if you are -- your average house member up there, you just won your district. probably did not support barack obama, and frankly your incentives are not aligned with the national party. you don't care about whether chrissis chriss christie or marco rubio gets support. pundits and grassroots and a lot of members will decide the issue in the house of representatives. >> big challenges for the president and internally. ahead on "starting point," we've heard about the second te
% of americans like him. he has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. those are pretty good numbers. and i think also there are glimmers of hope for those of us who believe the president has stayed on his side of pennsylvania avenue too much. he said over the past week or two, his daughters are getting older, they don't like hanging around dad as much anymore. >> he's lonely. >> he's lonely. the president used to tell anybody that would listen, i work and then i go upstairs and i'm with my family. you can't trivialize the fact that he is talking about reaching out more, not only to republicans, we hear the same complaint from democratic senators as well, it's a good sign and let's hope things get done. we have to make this city work again. >> tom's point, the perils of a second term, you have thought about this and talked to the president about it. how does he map out these next four years? >> first of all, i want to say i appreciate the priorities that tom laid out. but there's a larger priority of which this is part, which is how do you create an economy, rebuild an e
to all house republicans and said your fight is not with john boehner, your fight is with james madison. he wrote this system this is the government we have. if you believe in the constitution, we have division of power. tough work within that to get an agreement. >> so, then frame that for me as words in a speech tomorrow that the president's delivering. he has to say -- >> the speech tomorrow should be the big picture above it all, should not be specific policies. save it for the state of the union that is a more plebeian speech. the power of the inaugural speech, what you want to in your president. >> ari fleisher, nice to have you this afternoon. >> great to be here. >> so great to be here with you, of course, i'm john berman. >> thank you. >> thank you so much for joining us this special coverage of president obama's inauguration. >> of course, i'm soledad o'brien. our special coverage continues all afternoon. don lemon's going to be up next with more from here in washington, d.c. ♪ [ male announcer ] when we built the cadillac ats from the ground up to be the world's best sport
, one on the house, john boehner said we'll raise the debt sealing a dollar for every dollar you cut spending. republicans out of pennsylvania, pat toomey you prioritize the bills you pay for long period of time. weeks and months. make sure the military is taken care of. >> sure. bill: would you back house idea or senate idea or neither? >> i think both are part of the negotiation strategy. i think john boehner's plan to bring down spending dollar for dollar makes a lot of sense and i think pat toomey's does. you don't want to cut very things most critical to the u.s. there is lot of garbage spending in government, believe me, bill, when i say that. why would you make the critical spending the first things you're going to cut except just to hold the country hostage. that is what the democrats are threatening. it doesn't make sense. bill: do you think republicans can win on either option? >> if they do it carefully, slowly and comfortably, yes i do think they can win. i think we can get major reform using the debt ceiling, slowly but surely. don't make it a battle all at once. raise t
and the emergence once again of john boehner and eric cantor and their ability to block anything that he tries to get through congress. >> john boehner, who is just making his way right now to his seat at the inauguration ceremony. >> t know what percentage of vote he got to re-elect him? 100%. you know why? unlike newt gingrich who topple democratic speaker jim wright and tom foley, the democrats did not even field a candidate. in ohio, against john boehner, speaker of the house, his principal nemesis. then we wonder why he is so aggressive? see, this is where the problem is. what we need to focus on is, how we organize demands on president obama and the members of congress back home? there are only 536 of them. 650,000, men, women, and children in each congressional district. it is a fraction of those numbers, 1000, 2000, getting behind the kind of long overdue solutions in this country can begin to make it happen. you know what my motto is these days? we have got to realize it is a lot easier than we think. if we exaggerate the opposition as a reflection of our own self- imposed powerlessne
if there is no bill passed, congress does not get paid. all part of the proposal for next week. john boehner say before there is any long-term debt limit increase, a budget should be passed that should cut spending. they have failed to pass a budget for four years. this is a shameful run that needs to end this year. the strategy is to put this off until later this spring to deal with the automatic spending cuts, along with, in march, government spending does run out. they would focus on a longer-term debt ceiling increase sometime in april or may. that is the strategy from house republicans. president obama says he has not even entertained any type of negotiations. republicans should agree to raise the debt ceiling because having to raise it is the result of appropriations already passed and signed into law. back to you. melissa: thanks so much. ashley: here with reaction to the gop when it peter welch. thank you for joining us. you say, look, republicans are making it an "economic weapon of mass distraction." do they get is a continuation of that? >> it is actually progress for the republican c
will be lying low getting out of town entirely. high-ranking republicans such as house speaker john boehner and majority leader erick kanter, who have ceremonial roles, will attend. as well representative paul ryan, who probably envisioned the inauguration much differently months ago when he was part of the republican presidential ticket. it is my obligation, ryan said at a republican retreat. a republican of tennessee, a member of the joined congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies said that it is about the peaceful transition or reaffirmation of power. this is the 57th time the the president of the u.s. has been sworn in, and it has always been done without a mall, without insurrection, without a coup. that is why, whether you voted for mitt romney or barack obama, americans will stop and watch the inauguration and celebrate tradition. even so, republicans will stay awake and will lead democrats revel in their absence. but if you are an elected leader, you have to be there, said a republican strategist. otherwise you would probably want to get out of town, three- day weekend and al
control law pass under john boehner's speakership or stick their heads in the sand and have it pass under nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to brin
-- if congress acts on this, house speak her john boehner will have to play a significant role on this. yesterday after the president's remarks, the speaker was noncome mittal, saying there was little urgency to act. >> david keane, president of the national rifle association. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. my pleasure. >> i'll start with the quote of the mother of a 6-year-old who died. people who want to own firearms responsibly have nothing to fear from the president's proposal. you represent those law-abiding gun owners. what do they have to fear? >> they have a good deal to fear. they have to fear the establishment of the national registry. in the last few days, a senator from california and governor of new york suggested one of their goals is what they call a forced buyback. if you can get a record of who owns firearms, then the government could force them to sell those guns back to the government. >> let's talk about the proposals -- fair enough. let's talk about what's been proposed by the president. starting with universal background checks. why would it not be in the interes
